Flowers Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Fruit was rigorously hand sorted and gently whole cluster pressed. The juice was settled off heavy lees and put to barrel for fermentation. Temperatures were in the 65-72 degree range followed by stirring of light lees for 4 months in barrel. Mostly native yeast and malo-lactic (ML) fermentations with only a few lots fermented using cultured burgundy isolates. Fermentations were complete by March of 2007.

Nice chardonnay. Crisp but smooth. Citrus and honey with oak aroma. Good acidity, vanilla and citrus in the taste. Nice long finish. Love it.

For this Sonoma Coast Chardonnay, Flowers winery has maintained long-term contracts with vineyards. Extremely Burgundian in style, this is cool-climate Chardonnay at its best. Flowers has produces a white that is well-balanced, with a slight creaminess, while notes of mushroom and citrus reveal themselves on the palate.

Tasting Notes:

Showing balanced depth and complexity, light straw to golden color, aromas unfold with layers of lemon, pear, apricot and wet stone minerality. This vintage shows crispness on the palate, with a lush and balanced citrus finish. Showing very well now and will continue to gain complexity for 1 - 3 years.

Fruit was rigorously hand sorted and gently whole cluster pressed. The juice was settled off heavy lees and put to barrel for fermentation. Temperatures were in the 65-72 degree range followed by stirring of light lees for 4 months in barrel. Mostly native yeast and malo-lactic (ML) fermentations with only a few lots fermented using cultured burgundy isolates. Fermentations were complete by March of 2007.
